Sad Passing Of Aodh Cronin
It is with great regret and sadness that I inform you of the passing of our fine colleague and friend, Aodh Cronin, who died on Monday morning after an 18 month battle with a brain tumour.
Aodh joined the Association in 2005, after initially coming in as an intern working in the Club Licensing Department before taking on an additional role in the Facility Development section.
To his colleagues and friends Aodh will be remembered as an efficient, hardworking, and personable colleague who always gave his time to assist and support those he came in contact with.
Aodh was a proud Cork man, a man of conviction with a strong sense of right and wrong. He had a quick wit and wasn’t shy about putting you in your box when he felt aggrieved.
He played a substantial role in the development of the HQ at Abbotstown and was always willing to assist whenever a problem arose.
He was a keen sportsman and his passion for his native Cork was always apparent. I know that he thoroughly enjoyed his time working with the Association and in Irish football as those of you who would have witnessed him bravely coming in to work over the last number of months would testify.
I’m sure you will join me in taking a moment today to say a short prayer for him and his family.
May he rest in peace.
Requiem mass Wednesday 15th at 2pm in St Gobnait's Church Ballymakeera, Co. Cork. Burial afterwards in St Gobnait's Cemetery. Family flowers only, donations in lieu to Marymount Hospice.
